This talk was delivered at Edinburgh’s iconic Central Hall on Thursday, February 18th 2016 and was a part of series of talks given at the TEDxUniversityofEdinburgh 2016 Conference.

When it comes to Deri Llewellyn-Davies, the phrase ‘suited and booted’ takes on a new meaning: there aren’t many men out there who spend their days in a pinstriped three-piece and their spare time climbing the highest summits in the world. Deri Llewellyn-Davies is a speaker, entrepreneur and author. He has climbed six of the highest mountains in the world, completing the legendary Ironman, and recently made an attempt to scale Everest. Using the principles of purpose, vision and values, Deri aims to enable businesses and individuals alike to fulfil their potential.
